Letters from a Sports Fan Surpasses 100,000 Minutes Read
The Medium sports publication just keeps growing.
Letters from a Sports Fan had a fantastic week!
Every week, it continues to grow, thanks to the many writers we have who continue to contribute!
Letters from a Sports Fan has crossed the 100,000 mark for total minutes read! We reached this point after about two months.
We were celebrating 72,000 minutes read last week — this week, we jumped around 37,000 minutes read in a single week!
The views increased from around 50,000 last week to just over 76,000.
We had a little over 26,000 views in just one week.
Last week, we averaged around 1,100 visitors each day to Letters from a Sports Fan. Now, that thirty-day average has jumped to over 1,500 visitors each day.
I won’t list out everyone’s name this time — but our followers grew to 47.
Because sports are not as popular on Medium, I expect our follower numbers to grow relatively slowly.
However, as we’ve seen, follower growth is not necessarily connected to growing views.
We now have 28 writers for Letters from a Sports Fan.
The writers are the reason any publication succeeds — y’all are fantastic!
Some of y’all have asked me how the publication can benefit from the growing views.
My suggestions for our writers in the short term is this:
- Feel free to add your Medium referral link in your stories.
- Feel free to link to another article or two you’ve written.
- Feel free to include a link for people to subscribe to your personal newsletter.
I’m working through some ideas for Letters from a Sports Fan to grow in the long term.
One thing that’s working in our favor is that the publication is an asset to Medium — we are bringing a lot of external views to Medium’s platform. Medium’s growth depends on new people discovering the platform and becoming paying members.
Keep up the good work, everyone!
